If you really want one, I wouldnít let clamshell costs stop you. Thatís why we have insurance to alleviate majority of any repair costs. As others mentioned, it can be replaced or repaired on the extent of the damage. Although, with the age of the Elise/exige(fed lotus), any replacement clam will probably be a total loss. Rare case where only the clam was damaged and needs replacement without anything else needing repair. With the newer evoras, probably wonít be a total.
I have a $250 deductible so I donít worry too much and just try to enjoy. With that said, Iím still very careful and aware of my surroundings, where I park, or what location Iím going to, if there is a parking lot or not, etc. GLWS!
